Hit or Miss

Hello my dear blogger friends!

I will be hit or miss for the next few days... I am hoping to get some free time to finish up my 6 random things post as I was tagged by Kim as well as another post I have started about love.

My father in law has taken a turn for the worse. We know it is only a matter of no more than a week before he goes home to be with Jesus. The last few days have been bittersweet, but we have enjoyed many treasured moments as well. Family is so good! We are having to spend a lot of time at the house with my mother in law and father in law at this time, as well as juggle work, home etc.

I ask each of you to lift us up in prayer and ask the Lord for a speedy, peaceful release for my father in law. Losing him will be sad, but we know this is not the end! Praise Jesus that we have an eternity to be together.

I will be back as soon as I can.

Much Love,

i will certainly be lifting up you and your family this weekend. We have a dear friend, 32 yr old man, who will be entering the presence of the Lord within hours. I understand your pain and joy.

I'm praying for you and your family, Kristen. May GOD embrace you all and grant you an extra measure of His peace and comfort as you face these bittersweet days... Remember that you DO have eternity with your FIL in heaven. Death will be only a temporary separation. Love and prayers from NH, Carolyn

Kristen,
Please know that I will be lifting you and your family up in prayer. How thankful you must be for the moments that you've had with him recently and to be celebrating the fact that he is going be with Jesus-Heaven is our home.

Thinking of you and praying for you in the days ahead.

Know that I am sending a big hug your way.

Kristen,

I will pray, for the peaceful release into Jesus' hands, and for dignity as the transition takes place.

In my own little way, I understand, for it hasn't been that long that I walked this very path with my own Mom, at a very early age. She was 57. I miss her so, but there is joy deep down in my heart as I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, she is WITH JESUS!

Love,
Yolanda
